The Conversationalists

A few months ago there was an article about how to be the perfect party guest. One of the points proposed involved men always being ready and prepared with good conversation. This group is a place to post current events and talking points.

I agree 100% with Mr. Reece. If you want to be a good conversationalist, the key is listening. And, I propose that the ability to ask questions is also necessary. It's worked for me. Just be the conversation moderator; let others talk. Before you know it, people will be asking you, "What's on your mind?" Because they'll want you to start an interesting conversation by asking a question that ignites the conversation for the group. Trust me.

I must admit, after this group got off to such a slow start, I stopped checking it for a few months. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in today and found all of this recent activity.

Within the coming days I will try to come up with some tips and talking points. Thank you for all your comments.

I think the secret for good party conversation, as it is in any aspect of etiquete, is to be mindfull of how you may affect a person negatively, and then assert your conduct to not do so.
Be mindfull of one's point of view, even if you consider one's in error; trying to ajust you discourse so you be understandable by (at lest most of) your listeners; giving attentious time for everyone to do their talk; and knowing when to evade from unecessary argue. I gess this (but not only) can help a lot to reinforce a habit of conversation amongst friends, and not doing that bad among strangers...

Realy good group for conversation, this one! Bye

Conversations used to come so easliy. A lot of my perspectives have changed so now my style of conversing will have to change to be inline.

First, I think that at least half (hopefully more) of my conversations should be listening and really hearing what others have to say. Rather than in the past I would barely hear what others had to say as I was already thinking about what I wanted to say.

Secondly, thirdly, ...and so on I hope to pick up tips for herein.

Good idea for a group, I hope it takes off.

Thanks
